Do you remember the way you felt that horrible September 11th eight years ago? It was early morning in Hawaii, and I remember it well.
My heart aches as I type this.
How did you process your emotions of sorrow and anguish? The world is still mourning that day!
My process involved a whole lotta tears. I hope you found something equally as effective. You can’t keep that strong emotion inside you, even though it may feel safer to stuff it.
It isn’t necessary to focus on painful anniversaries, but if they bring up old emotion, take advantage of the blessing and release all that stuff you’ve been holding onto.
Be gentle with yourself. Time heals but it can also bring up new layers of grief. Some aspects of the grieving process are just too painful to bear until some time has passed.
The following song really helps me. The Eagles wrote it during their healing process from 9–11. I love what they ask from each of us.
Besides ripping our hearts out, September 11th also caused us to reach out to each other in a way that I don’t think many had experienced in their lifetime.
Didn’t the pain of September 11th cause your hardened heart to melt?
What have you done with all that fear and sorrow?
What steps have you taken to assure that there will never be such a hole in the world ever again?
What steps can you take today?
What can you do to heal the world so there will be no more holes?
One person CAN make a difference!
